Okay so here I go again only this time I am going to make this work. I am 48 but want to be a kid again and start over. Right! Fat chance that only happens in movies! I am an ART major I have my BA in Art and I took years of schooling off and on because I believed that any schooling was better than none, I was wrong. There are several songs by Martina Mcbride that I can relate to and today I am struggling with depression, wishing I could wave a magic wand and fix ME. I've cried most of the day off and on. I wish I had the answer to my mood swings...I am told it is probably premenapausal or hormones, possibly even a chemical imbalance, so whatever, it doesn't help to stop feeling sad. I am determined to beat this and get myself back in control of the me I have lost because I place all others before myself, my goals and my needs. I hope to dig myself out of the pit I've fallen in. Weight wise, I am not where I want to be, but then again I am not really eatting much either, binging and starving, a cycle I just repeat.
Okay so the happy me needs to return I need to find out my options again and believe I have some! Prayers and hugs help the most.

Fitness Minutes: 95

My Goals:
My new GOAL is to make some NEW goals. I am starting over. I am trying to think of me , tough to do when I do for others most of the time, I have lost a lot, but mostly myself. I do not know who I am anymore.

My Program:
Take time to be healthy for my sanity! Eatting what I like is usually the healthy choice my husbands eatting is what makes me cave, I am no longer going to cave. I hate the greasey stuff he likes but to make him happy I cook it. NO more!

Personal Information:
I was born here in upstate NY, for those of you who do not understand that, that means NO WHERE NEAR NYC. I am infact closer to the PA boarder.
I have lived all over the USA and even for awhile in Germany. I tell folks my mother was a Gypsy!
I have 4 grown young men from my first marriage and a beautifl little girl form my current marriage, which also brought in 2 grown step-children from his 1st marriage. We have His , Mine and ours which with those married into the family totals now 11!
I hope to finish everything on my BUCKET LIst before I kick my bucket, and I hope to help my little girl learn to love life and learning as much as I do!

Other Information:
It has always been extremely hard for me to choose favorites! I simplly like far too many things to narrow it down to one even in each catagory! I guess there are a few favotrites I can list:
Color= GREEN
Flower= Lily of the Valley
Tree= White Birch
Food= Seafood, mainly crab legs , shrimp and lobster
Sweet treat+ ice cream
and milk chocolate
(LINDT'S my weakness)
I love good books, I love good movies, Preferably, adventure, comedies and dramas-I do not watch anything rated" R"
I love music, Enya is probably amoung my favorites.
I loved school and miss it, and believe in Life long learning!
I am religious and love the Lord and He is my strength and my purpose on this earth is to simply pass His tests and return to Him. I have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of Jesus Christ and the plan of Salvation and I know I am a child of GOD.
As a latter day saint I choose to obey the commandments and follow the teachings of the prophets to the

    Been forever since I've been on track or even on Sparks it's now MAY and the month has begun in a difficult twist withanother death in our family. I go to the funeral/Memorial services tomorrow in PA. I just can't believehow time is going by so much faster than before. I just can not get back in a rhythm with anything. Forgiveme one and all for not being supportive or even participating in anything for so long, hopefully after this funeral I can try to collect my witts and get myself back in gear, it has been such a tough year. Relying on Heaven in 2011. emoticon
